Fault Lines

BLOOMINGTON, Ill.— Illinois Wesleyan University’s School of Theatre Arts will present a lab production of Ali Taylor’s new comedy Fault Lines Oct. 27-29.

Focusing on a disaster charity struggling to stay afloat, the play exposes the dilemmas of working in a modern-day charity. As the bickering, hungover employees are faced with the breaking news of a massive earthquake in Pakistan the morning after the office Christmas party, the play explores whether doing good is always the same as being good.

The show is directed by IWU Director and Associate Professor of Theatre Arts Thomas Quinn, with theatre arts major Taylor Coduto '20 serving as the assistant director. Cast members include Morgan McCane '20, Braden Tanner '20, Emily Strub '20 and Andrea Froehlke '20.

Curtain is at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday in the E. Melba Johnson Kirkpatrick Lab Theatre, and at 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $3 for general admission and $2 for students with a valid ID. Tickets will be available for purchase at the McPherson Hall box office beginning Monday, Oct. 23. The box office is open weekday afternoons until 5 p.m., and the phone number is (309) 556-3232.
